Showcase 4.0 will be broadcast via the Mad Cave Studios Twitch channel and will feature appearances by some of the publisher’s top talent and the announcement of new projects for both Mad Cave and its YA imprint, Maverick… not to mention the announcement of the winners of the 2021 Talent Search!

Mad Cave Showcase 4.0

Hosted by Benny Potter (@Comicstorian), Mad Cave Showcase 4.0 will feature a whole slate of exciting guest stars, including Mad Cave Studios CEO/CCO Mark London (Wolvenheart; Battlecats) and many of the writers, artists, and editors behind your favorite Mad Cave titles! Check out the full schedule now:

You’ll want to mark your calendars and watch the stream live in order to take part in the chat, which will give you the opportunity to participate in giveaways that could see you being awarded prizes like exclusive variant covers, TTRPG dice sets (perfect for a round of Dice & Deathtraps), and other sensational surprises.

2021 Talent Search

Mad Cave Showcase 4.0 will also feature the announcement of the winners of the 2021 Talent Search! Entrants submitted writing and artwork set in Mad Cave’s Wolvenheart universe in order to be considered for this year’s talent search.

In 2019, Shane Connery Volk and David Hazan won the talent search, and went on to create the breakout hit Nottingham. And the 2020 winners of the talent search collaborated with Cullen Bunn on Grimm Tales From the Cave, the outstanding horror anthology that will be available at your local comic shop beginning on October 27th, 2021 (just in time for Halloween… but you can read an interview with the creators right now).

This year, four artists and four writers have been selected and will be announced during the Mad Cave Showcase… as if you needed any more reason to tune in!

Tune in October 22nd
